Christmas time is almost here and you’ve got a baker to please. What do baker’s really want though? Sticking with the basics is always a good idea but if you add in something a bit unique your friend has never thought of, they’ll get really excited. So whether your friend needs tools or coloring, this guide will definitely get the gears rolling on what to get your dear baker.
Nonstick Mini Cheesecake Pan With Handles
If you’re looking to provide your friend with a baking pan but it seems like they’ve already got it all, you have to get a little creative. A mini cheesecake pan is less common but still something that would definitely be used if handy. Mini cheesecakes are perfect for parties where tons of people are going to need a piece and will actually save your friend money as they will be giving out smaller portions. Alternatively, if your friend has a large family, they can portion out the treats for everyone.
2 Layer Cupcake and Cookie Holder
Cupcakes are super hard to transport without messing them up. Even if you buy pre-made from the store, haven’t you noticed the cupcakes get crushed in the cheap packaging? It’s time to give your friend the life hack they deserve for all the sweet treats they’ve provided you with.
Zesters are so important for adding extra flavor as well as making desserts aesthetically pleasing. Make sure to check your friend’s kitchen as this is an item they might already have.
Icing Squeeze Bottles
Even if your friend already has squeeze bottles, they can never have enough. These wear down over time, so it’s always nice to get a new set.
Now these are super useful. Not only are they great for scooping dough and ice cream, I love these for peanut butter. I like to add peanut butter to my recipes to make them smooth and indulgent but they really stick to those spoons. If you use one of these, it is so much easier to get those last bits of peanut butter off.
Disposable Pastry Bags With Dispenser
Here is another essential item that needs to be replaced regularly. These can go so fast so if you relieve your friend of the duty of replacing this, they’ll thank you for it.
6 Cavity Donut Pan
If you’re like me, you like to have control over the sweetness of your donuts. This means, you gotta make them yourself. No exceptions. Honestly, I like my donuts barely sweet with no toppings. If you have a friend like this, give them one of these pans.
Soft Gel Paste
Food coloring is something that runs out pretty quick, but if you go gel, you can make it last a bit longer. If your friend has not been introduced to this gel concept, get them in on it.
Bundtlette Cake Pan
Bundt cakes are already cute, but if you want to take things a step further, it’s time for mini bundt cakes. Honestly, this one is a perfect gift for everyone and not just avid bakers.
There you have it, some essentials for your baker friend’s kitchen. Whether they are looking for tools, storage or coloring, there is something here for every baker. What’s your baker’s favorite baking item? Let us all know in the comments!
